Many thanks to those who attended the meeting, we have a new committee member in Mike Henshaw who's knowledge of the reserve will be invaluable to our group. Thanks to Mike for accepting the invitation. A special thanks also to Hugh for walking us through the process of setting out a constitution. We as a group have set out an interim constitution that will be ratified at the next meeting and will be held in place until a full A.G.M., where it can then be made permanent by the full membership. This will give us the means to start a membership list / bank account / fund raising etc without having to wait until March. My thanks to Lisa for taking the minutes and typing this up. Anyone wanting a copy if you could e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will endeavour to send you one. A date has been set for the A.G.M. for the 21st of March 2012 venue to be announced at a later date, I hope you will all come along where we are hoping to have a slide show of members pictures and maybe some supper. The next meeting of the group will be on the 23rd of November at the adult learning centre in Brighouse ALL WELCOME please come along and show your support.
Yours Graham Haigh

The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust vaccinated 35 badgers during the summer against the bacterium that causes tuberculosis (TB) in cattle. Full story.
